Lull

IMG_6983

 

Leaves play tag in the breeze

as cars chase green lights.

I am the only stillness

in the city this hour.

 

Smiling without permission

no need to ask, “Am I allowed?”

The leaves don’t ask to dance

down the sidewalk.

 

I grant myself this moment

this sunlight soak before

winter darkness.
